Standard typeface is missing; any new drawing would need a new, different typeface.

The new update has contained a refreshed interface and has allowed tools such as the ruler to be available, making relatively simple tasks much easier and I have not faced any issues. However the seems to be a noticeable absence in the ‘Standard’ font which makes an appearance on all of my drawings. I hope this is fixed otherwise my life would become much more difficult and my drawings would not maintain the same level of consistency that was present before the update.

It has been more than ten months since my drawings had for whatever reason, disappeared (I can forget about it, but alas..). Occasionally, my experience with the app has definitely been affected by glitches and bugs. I hope the developers will reduce the likelihood of bugs and glitches to occur, that would cause the app to crash, that could leave me in a state of panic and reinstalling the app, only for my drawings to disappear.

An app that I have been using for two years should evolve and improve over time, learning from mistakes and improving the quality and usage experience of the app. Somtimes when using this app, I feel a little let down by the glitches and bugs that are still present. As a result of this long-standing reputation, I cannot rate this more than four stars.

Great, unless using the community

In my opinion this game is amazing but, there are some glitches that make it seem horrible too. I recommend this game for everyone ENLESS you are using the community. I used to post on the community and i loved it, but I can’t anymore because it wont let me post. Another thing to fix is the wifi glitch. As long as your wifi is off you can minus how many likes you want on other peoples work, which is upsetting to the many people who has lost likes. Thirdly, I think it would be helpful if you could add a search button on the community because it would be easier to search up Artists names. There is one more bug I would like to address: When you are typing and tap the screen to go out of it, it still has the blue bar so unless you press return (On laptop) you are stuck with the blue line. Other than that this drawing app is fabulous! Thank you sketches keep up the great work!

Pro version problem

Hello, I recently brought the Pro Version and have had one particular problem since I brought it. I like to record my drawings and for some reason my screen randomly goes black, I then exit the drawing and it’s fine, but once I go back into the drawing? It goes back to being a black screen. No I was not using the filler tool when the screen went black. This has happened to a specific drawing, I’ve duplicated it twice and it has been the same. When this happens, I save my drawing and add it to a new slot, then I trace over it. It wastes my time and is quite annoying. I would like to know why this has happened and if I can fix the problem by myself. Other than this problem, the app has been outstanding and I use it most of the time.
